Roxanne Tong Spends 45 Million HKD on a Propertyjessie tan
Former Miss Hong Kong contestant Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯) has been well-liked since starring in the TVB sitcom, Come Home Love <愛．回家>, in 2012, and her popularity continued to rise after joining variety show Sidewalk Scientists <學是學非> as one of the hosts. Two years ago, TVB finally gave her a taste of lead actress with Tofu War <燦爛的外母>, and since then, the company has been heavily promoting her. She took part in the highly anticipated drama, Forensic Heroes 4 <法證先鋒IV>, and she treasured the opportunity by working hard to lose weight for the series.
Finding success after eight years in the industry, Roxanne purchased a Lily Avenue villa from the Crown of St. Barths development in Ma On Shan for 45 million HKD last month. The unit has 2,161 square feet of living space, and it comes with an additional 549 square feet garden and parking space. According to the information from Land Registry, the registered buyer is Tong Lok Man, and the buyer chose to pay off the property for over five years.
At the beginning of the year, Roxanne already expressed the desire to buy a property. At the time, she said, “I want to invest in a small place, and I don’t want to co-own it with a boyfriend.”
However, her idea of “small” is actually pretty big. “Actually, I have been living with my family this whole time, and I’ve always hoped my family can live better. Everyone is responsible for the new place, so I need to work harder.”
As a first time homeowner, Roxanne admitted she is clueless about a lot of things. “I’m a little nervous and stressed, but I’m happy,” Roxanne said.
Regarding her choice of property, the actress said her whole family gave input. After all, Roxanne’s father Tong Chun Chung (湯鎮宗) – the brother of Kent Tong (湯鎮業) – has frequently profited from his real estate investments.
Crown of St. Barths offers a total of 67 residential units. Each house or villa is two to three stories high, ranging from 2,146 to 3,804 square feet, and all units are equipped with gardens, parking spaces, rooftops, and 65 square feet terraces.
